Coming to Town: Mutual Benefit @ The Mohawk 1/31

Right now, Mutual Benefit are in the midst of their first proper tour across the US. What was original started as a solo recording project by one Jordon Lee that didn't even play shows when it started, will performing his lush, almost orchestral indie-folk in its current six piece form tonight at the Mohawk. If the band can bring to life an ounce of the beauty and emotion that was found on Love's Crushing Diamond, their quietly excellent debut from last year, tonight's show will truly be something to see.


Opening the show tonight will be Austin's own Poppy Red, the the long distance bedroom-pop project of Molly Long and Jimmy Spice. Together they craft this truly intimate pop, the type that feels both intimate and swelling at the same time (seriously, their Keep Your Heart EP from last year is scary good). I've been dying to see them since my friend Jheri told me about them, so I'm am beyond happy the chance has finally arrived.
